The Clodfather

This one reminds me of the lawyer who, while representing a defendant who had murdered both parents, asked the court to show leniency on the grounds that his client was an orphan:

Dems argue Obama isn’t nominee to fight ballot challenge | Times 247

Attorneys arguing on behalf of Barack Obama’s re-election plans today urged a Florida judge to decide that Obama is not yet the Democratic nominee for president – and ignore evidence challenging his eligibility …

Florida notwithstanding, if government remains long in the hands of the Kenyan from Hawaii and his socialist enablers, we’ll all soon be wards of the state.  The 2012 Heritage Foundation Economic Freedom Index ranks the United States, now the Land of the Mostly Free, in 10th place and sinking:

Its score is 1.5 points lower than last year, reflecting deteriorating scores for government spending, freedom from corruption, and investment freedom.

[…] Although the foundations of economic freedom remain strong, recent government interventions have eroded limits on government, and public spending by all levels of government now exceeds one-third of total domestic output. The regulatory burden on business continues to increase rapidly, and heightened uncertainty further increases regulations’ negative impact. Fading confidence in the government’s determination to promote or even sustain open markets has discouraged entrepreneurship and dynamic investment within the private sector. Restoring the U.S. economy to the status of a “free” economy will require significant policy changes to reduce the size of government, overhaul the tax system, and transform costly entitlement programs.

    Obama’s answer to this would be, “It’s Bush’s fault.”

  2. He never did explain the “fundamental” change he had in mind for America. Now we know. I hope that “we” is a big majority amd “we” send him and Moochelle packing in November.

    Somehow chile beating us out still won’t make my “move to” state.

      Re-electing the Big Red One will move us into the “Used To Be Free” category, BUNKER. At which point Chile will look more appealing. Then again, so will the Republic of Fiji.
